Jesy Nelson thinks it is "sad" she doesn't speak to Little Mix anymore.

The 'Boyz' singer quit the group in December 2020 and things have seemingly grown increasingly acrimonious between in recent months, with Leigh-Anne Pinnock seemingly accusing her of 'blackfishing' in leaked texts, prompting Nicki Minaj to wade in and brand Leigh-Anne a "jealous clown".

But Jesy insisted there is no "bad blood" from her and she is hopeful she can be friends with Leigh-Anne, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards again one day.

Speaking to talk show host Graham Norton, she admitted: “We’re not talking any more. It is sad but honestly there is no bad blood from my side, and I still love them to pieces and genuinely wish them all the best.

"I loved my time with them, and we’ve got the most incredible memories together but It’s just one of those things which needs to take time, so who knows.

"To me they are still the ‘sickest’ girl band in the world."

The 30-year-old singer is hoping to build on the popularity of 'Boyz' with an album but doesn't want to rush the record.

Asked what's next for her, she said: “An album hopefully next year. I’m still in the writing process and I don’t want to rush things.”

P. Diddy has a cameo role in the 'Boyz' video and Jesy admitted she was keen to have him involved as soon as she heard the song for the first time.

She said: “From the moment I wrote the song I knew I wanted him in it. He heard the song and loved it and then said he would be in the video. I feel like he definitely thought I was in the Spice Girls!"

Watch the full interview, as well as a performance from Jesy, on 'The Graham Norton Show' on BBC One on Friday (29.10.21) night or on BBC iPlayer.
